You can bring a boost to any virtual meeting when you introduce an interactive game or an exercise that invites participation. When we play, our brains become interested and alert. We learn more, we empathize, and we connect with others through our shared experience. Build strong relationships through virtual mediums by learning a few good games. With a game, we gain the opportunity to contribute enthusiastically. Meeting on Zoom is not the same as meeting in person. Zoom Exhaustion Fatigue makes our attendees tune out, and highly addictive social media is only a click away. By using the power of play, and inviting interaction from your attendees, you can increase digital engagement with your friends, family, clients, or team.

28 July 2022 – Turn Talk Into Action with Dr Isabella Allan

Background
Wellness is top of mind for us as we consider the Third Way of Working. The pandemic crisis triggered a surge in mental health issues for employees and while data might suggest the majority of people are coming to grips with wave after wave of variations the virus mutates into, there are still a minority that need to be considered. Responding to the majority, and caring for the minority is central to the idea of building team mojo, resilience and wellbeing in a hybrid working world.

This theme will be the focus of this short masterclass on one of the most fundamental challenges we face in 2022 and beyond – leader led hybrid team gatherings that enable inclusion, engagement and turn talk into action. 

What will be covered
In this short masterclass we will cover the following:

  • Why quality leader led meetings are more important than ever.
  • How to shift team mojo so hybrid meetings are engaging for both the in-person and virtual team members.
  • If hybrid is not embraced what are the implications for our people and our organisations.

This will be an interactive session aimed at providing you with some key ideas to implement in your next hybrid meeting

Dr Isabella Allan is an expert in behavioural change and has worked with leaders and boards of some of the world’s most important organisations. She is the author of the book Turn Talk into Action the shares the practical ideas that have transformed the way over 500 leaders approach the way they talk with key stakeholders. With vignette case studies she demonstrates how turning talk into action helps leaders from government, for-profit, and for-purpose, transform the way they understand the people important to their business and turn talk into action.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The foundations that underpin effective communication (Choice, Control, Consideration, Courage and Communication).
